2:00 pm - Winter Birding in the Lower Hudson
January 28 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
What birds can we expect to see in the winter months at bird feeders and when we visit local parks and sanctuaries? How do birds adapt to winter weather? What winter bird sounds can we hear? Anne Swaim will explore these and other questions with many images and video clips of local birds in winter and what to watch for as spring gets closer.
